    I never use it as to not let one provider dominate. I choose products on their merit not popularity, in order to improve quality. If you blindly use one vendor then they'll lower their standards & find trick ways to make money.

    noep. Google is smarter than other search engines. try it yourself and see.

    if you type a word wrong, it fixes it.

    if you type road, it also searches street, avenue, boulevard, etc.

    if you ask a simple question, like "3000 rupes in USD", it shows the answer.

    i search for something often enough, it learns my interests, and shows more accurate results in the future...

    No. Google is the most popular site in the Internet world and extremely highly recommended search engine. Sites like Mozilla Firefox, Bing and even Yahoo are useful and many people do use them as a search engine.

    I use it as it is the single most comprehensive one.

    They also have the best analytics and search optimisation / page analysis tools, when creating web pages.

    While some may, most experienced users use the engine that best suits their search needs. I use, in most cases, Google for general searches, and Bing for images.

    People are used to saying 'google it' - they never say 'yahoo it' - goes to show the importance of selecting the right name when it comes to marketing.  The irony is that many people on Yahoo Answers recommend Google.
